Wwoof in Jeju Island – Seonam Farm
Initially I was thinking to do couchsurfing but the couchsurf host did not reply me their contact details which made me switch to wwoofing instead. I paid only for membership registration of 1 year – 50,000 won and did my own host booking online – I saved 30,000 won and the hosts details are on the website once I logged into their database – I saved 10,000 won.
However, I was quite rude to the wwoof host as I did not email him prior to going. It was last minute decision as I had no place to stay and didn’t want to stay at jjimjilbang. Basically I didn’t want to spend my precious money..hehe.
So I called the host the night before, he was not expecting my sudden request and couldn’t refuse it. After checking out of Yeha Guesthouse at around 8am, I went to the next Jeju local bus terminal which was about 5 minute walk away. As the farm was located in Seogwipo-si, I had to ride the bus for about an hour; 3,000 won fare. When I met him, I told him that I will do a week job but actually I shouldn’t as he normally only accept wwoofer for a month worth or more. Yikes!! But I was already at the farm. 어쩔 수 없다. ^^
Seonam farm is located about 40 minutes bus ride from Seogwipo city. We stayed in a different house from the hosts and sometimes the hosts would cook for us ^^. The best thing about Seonam farm was we were given 2 or 3 days off after 3 days work. Working time starts from 8am to 5pm.
